A few weeks ago I went to see my niece play ball hockey near my sister’s place. When I first arrived I stopped for a latte at a nearby coffee shop called “The Rooster”. As they handed me my drink, I was taken by surprise. There in the middle of my cup was the most beautiful heart shaped, flower design. I wasn’t expecting it and it really made me smile. I told the girl who had made the design how much I appreciated her special effort. She said that all of the staff there are trained to make such works of art and that once you got the hang of it, it really wasn’t that hard to do. This made me realize something. It is often the small, kind gestures that people do for us, day in and day out, that make the greatest difference in our lives. Are you a person who makes such a difference? Do you practice small acts of kindness with the people in your life? Do you show true gratitude for the people who do kind things for you?
- Small acts of kindness make a big difference in our day. Be generous with such acts and show gratitude for those who practice such kindness with you.
